Ok my electric guitar keeps fading in and out as I play. I figured it was the input jack so I unscrewed it to tighten it without jacking the wiring. Now (days later) it fades out and it will not sound at all!!!

Can someone tell me what is wrong and how to fix it or if I killed it plz?

What kind of guitar is it? If it has active pickups, it may be time for new batteries.

There are several models of Epi LPs, but I don't know if any with actives.

What is your amp?

Also, what are your settings on both your amp and guitar?

Could be the cable. Have you tried a different cable?

See if it is your pickup selector switch. I had an issue in which my guitar volume would go out while I was playing. Turns out the switch was bad and I would inadvertently hit it when I was playing causing it. After a jiggle of the switch it would go back on.

i have never owned an epi, but if they use the same open styled switch like a gibson i would try some contact cleaner in there and wiggle it back and fourth. i have fixed similar issues with the switch on a few of my Gibsons.

deoxit would be what i recommend for a contact cleaner.
